Olympic Arms introduced a new rifle at the 2015 SHOT Show that is bound to catch people’s attention. The new gun combines the modularity (and calibers) of the AR-15 platform with the ability to also shoot .308 Win and other short action cartridges merely by swapping the upper.

The bonus is the rifle is not crazy expensive either. Let’s take a look at the new MPR 308-15 Multi-Purpose Rifle…

Caldwell Mag Charger for AR

Caldwell AR-15 Mag Charger

Perhaps the coolest gadget I’ve seen at the SHOT Show so far this year is the Caldwell AR-15 Mag Charger.  Being displayed at the Battenfeld Technologies booth, the Mag Charger is designed to quickly load AR-15 magazines in three easy steps.  According to the advertisement, the Mag Charger can load 30-rounds of ammunition from the box to the magazine in only 10 seconds.  The system is capable of loading .223, 5.56mm, and .204 ammunition.

The Mag Charger has a spring loaded ammunition tray designed for 50 rounds per load sitting inside of an open-topped plastic housing.  Loading 50-round boxes of ammunition that typically sit loosely in a plastic or styrofoam tray is best, but ammunition can be loaded individually if needed.
